    Grass is an ideal answer for not only evaluation but also determination of environmental & contextual condition.(ARE 5.0 HB PA section 1) This maybe one ideal question which contain all aspect of PA exam.

    Also - on the conductivity question - if you consider a section of what you're dealing with, gravel tends to provide separation between the stones/grain - which is why we use it for drainage.  Because of this, the thermal conductivity between the stones would be reduced (as the stones have less contact with each other) rather than something like grass which grows in a more solid medium (soil) which likely also has moisture in it - which is more likely to pass the thermal characteristics down through it..
